- Salt and lime for garnish (optional)
- If serving Martini Style:

- Serve this pomegranate cocktail recipe in a martini glass prepared as follows:
- Mix in a bowl, one part ground cinnamon and one part granulated sugar.
- Moisten the rim of a martini glass by swiping a slice of orange around the rim.
- Dust glass rim with the sugared cinnamon mixture and decorate with a spiral of orange.
To juice the pomegranate, cut it in half (as you would a grapefruit) and juice using a citrus reamer or a juicer. Pour mixture through a cheesecloth-lined strainer or sieve. One large POM Wonderful Pomegranate will produce about 1/2 cup of juice.
